Congratulations to Tasmanian author Rachael Treasure. Her publisher, Penguin, is reprinting The Rouseabout, her latest novel, only two days after the release of the first printing.

An earthy and humorous writer, Rachael Treasure is gaining a substantial following through her website, Treasure’s Tales, where she keeps up a lively running commentary on living and literature.

Film producers, she says, are circling already for the rights to The Rouseabout – but she’s determined not to let just any Harry O Selznick give the story the usual Hollywood makeover.
